Happy Reformation! By Grace Alone! By Faith Alone! By Scripture Alone! By Christ Alone! is the message preached at our mission, Iglesia Luterana-Cristo Resucitado, especially during the month of October.
Today, we began with our regular worship service, arriving early in case any visitors forgot to set their clocks back (México´s daylight savings started today). A new family attended, looking for a church and activities for their children. They saw the advertisement in the newspaper for our mission and came to see what the Lutheran church is all about. They stayed for all the activities throughout the day!
Following the service, Missionary Brad led a Bible Study about Martin Luther and the Reformation. 23 visitors participated-some were English students and many came from the invitation and article in the newspaper. Then we enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Rosa, the wife of our seminary student Gerardo. Others brought desserts and side dishes. A great opportunity for fellowship!
After some minor technical difficulties, we concluded the event with the movie Luther in Spanish.
It was fun day reviewing details of the Reformation and sharing our faith with friends and new faces from the community.
May the Lord continue to bless the efforts of our mission in León, leading souls to Jesus! Amen.
Missionary Brad shared, “we had exactly 25-45 visitors throughout the day on Sunday.”
